German multinational enterprises carry out German-style vocational education and training activities at their global branches. This case study on the educational programs of the automotive industry located in the State of Puebla (Central Mexico) aims to generate a deeper understanding of how and why the German apprenticeship model is exported to Mexico and implemented locally. The interaction between the companies and the institutional and organisational environment in which the multinational enterprises operate are analysed. Findings indicate that the three dual apprenticeship programs of Volkswagen, Audi and Schuler - although all located in the same institutional environment - show different degrees and ways of adapting to the local environment. © 2017 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
